Creamy Chorizo Pasta

Pasta is one of those things that people find hard to say goodbye to, I hadn't eaten it in years and was quite happy that way, but was introduced to Zucchini pasta a few months back while at a restaurant and set about introducing it into our menu at home as its just so damn good! I prefer it to to regular pasta and there is no bloating afterwards or that horrible slump that occurs soon after having a big bowl of pasta

Preparation is a very straightforward, Grab a vegetable peeler and start peeling, when you get to the seeds top. Pop the pasta into a bowl and sprinkle with a little sea salt to dray excess moisture Set aside until a little later
Here's some I prepared earlier ;)
So with that out of the way you are going to need some other tasty treats to add to you fantastic low carb pasta you just whittled out so here's what you are going to need

1 Chorizo Sausage Chopped into disks
1 Garlic Clove minced
2-3 Field Mushrooms Chopped
Baby Asparagus
1 Green Capsicum De Seeded and Chopped
1 Spring Onion chopped
1 Tbsp Double Cream

Add the Chirizo to a Fry pan and cook until it starts to brown slightly
Add the Capsicum, Mushroom and Garlic cook until tender
Add the Baby Asparagus and Spring onion, cook until the asparagus turns bright green
Reduce heat and stir thru Pasta and Cream
Top with a little cracked pepper and Parmesan
That took approximately 15 mins to make
